seedy underbelly

2tired2care  asked:

Pst hi I LOVE YOUR FICS you have no idea how much they give me life <3 <3 I came across this really cute (and frankly heartbreaking) AU: "[burgler gently wakes me] you live like this?" (stolen from a post I saw on fb) and I kinda just need Stiles to do everything he can to make Derek's life better? THANK YOU SO MUCH :D

It IS frankly heartbreaking… which means I’m totally into it.

(now also on AO3!)

Derek definitely went to sleep alone. He always does, these days. It doesn’t explain why he drifts awake in the middle of the night to the feeling of someone lightly poking his shoulder.

It’s probably not a good sign that when he opens his eyes and sees a gangly teenage boy in a red hoodie and grubby-looking black fingerless gloves standing over him, he doesn’t startle. His claws don’t come out; his eyes don’t flash. He just feels… resigned.

“You live like this?” the guy says, soft. Almost pitying. “I mean. You actually live here?”

That seems too obvious, not to mention too insulting, to merit a response. “What are you doing here?” Derek asks instead. His voice comes out low and rough. This is the first time in days he’s had any reason to say anything. “This is private property.”

The guy shifts on his feet and sticks his hands under his armpits uncomfortably. “Okay, straight to the awkward questions. I like that.”

@kawaiilo-ren and I made a thing because we love YOI too much.

Inspired by this post.

@mavinsheartbeat​ ask and you shall receive :)

The thing is, Ryan is actually really good at hacking. Before becoming The Vagabond, he used to do freelance hacking for random crews as a means to pay his rent. He’d made a lot of contacts doing that, and when he switched from hacker to hitter he knew who to go to when he needed work. Naturally, he works alone as much as he possibly can, but sometimes he has to admit that he can’t do everything by himself.

He hates using outside help, but for this job it’s a necessity, and the hacker he usually works with got pinched two weeks ago in Vice City. He’d do the hacking himself, but he hasn’t invented a way to be in two places at once yet, and he needs someone at the computer watching his ass. So, against his better judgment, he spends the better part of two days looking for a hacker.

He finds Golden Boy through a mutual contact; a sarcastically, argumentative British man who simply refuses to show his face to anyone, and, as someone who doesn’t show his face for a living, Ryan can respect this decision. That doesn’t mean he’s not extremely annoyed by this either, but he can’t exactly complain.

After a series of phone calls, and some extensive research into Golden Boy’s past deeds, Ryan decides to hire him for the job. He’s good, even if his idiosyncrasies drive Ryan up a wall, and the job goes off without a hitch.

Ryan has to begrudgingly admit they work well together, and he uses Golden Boy for five more jobs. Despite never meeting in person (or knowing his real name for that matter), and the fact that they’ll never fully trust each other, Ryan comes to rely on Golden Boy to always be there when he needs him; that little voice in his ear that makes squeaking noises and asks inane questions when he’s bored.

At some point, he stops worrying about never seeing Golden Boy’s face or learning his name. They’re two criminals trying to stay alive in the seedy underbelly of Los Santos, the less they know about each other the better.

That is until the Shadelz’s job. Until the little street rat betrays him and LSPD ambushes him at their agreed upon meeting place. He barely manages to get away in one of their cars, shoulder bleeding heavily from a gunshot wound, and he calls Golden Boy on the road.

“I’m fucked,” he says when Golden Boy answers, glancing in the rear view mirror, blue and red lights flashing back at him.

Well, hello to you too,” Golden Boy replies nonchalantly and Ryan sighs in frustration. “Tell Uncle Goldy what happened and he’ll try to fix it.”

“My fucking contact flipped on me.”

“That’s not good.”

“No, it’s really not.” Ryan cannot believe how casual Golden Boy is acting, but it makes sense. He doesn’t have half the LSPD up his ass nor does he need to worry if Ryan gets caught. He knows nothing about Golden Boy other than he’s a hacker.

“Look, can you help me or not?” Ryan demands gripping the steering wheel tightly, wincing when his shoulder flares up.

Golden Boy is quiet for a good ten seconds before saying, “Take the next right.”

Ryan does as he’s told, tires squealing against the pavement. He hears a crash from behind him, and looks out the side mirror, watching as a semi-truck’s wheels lock up in an attempt to stop, its grill shoving two police cars into an abandoned building.

Ryan uses the distraction to drive down random alleyways, listening to Golden Boy’s instructions until he ends up at an empty parking garage. He parks the car, grabs his phone, and escapes on foot.

Once he’s a good six blocks from the cops, he says, “Thanks.”

No problem.” Golden Boy falls silent again, and Ryan thinks for a moment that he hung up. Until he says, “Stay where you are, okay? I’m coming to get you.”

“What? How do you know…?” Ryan trials off, sighing. Right, GPS. He knows he turned it off, but Golden Boy probably turned it back on. The only reason Ryan doesn’t throw his phone onto the ground and smash it into pieces is because LSPD doesn’t know who The Vagabond is, and instead he waits patiently for Golden Boy to get here.

He’s a little apprehensive, this will be the first time he and Golden Boy will be meeting face to face. What if Golden Boy betrays him like Shadelz? It’s a possibility, even though they’ve done jobs together neither one owe the other anything. Maybe he shouldn’t be waiting for Golden Boy. Maybe he should hightail it out of here before LSPD show up and arrest him, but he’s tired, dizzy, and bleeding profusely; he’s not going anywhere.

A gold convertible pulls up, stopping in front of him, and a bearded man wearing a pair of sunglasses grins over at Ryan. He pushes them up onto his head, dark eyes settling on him, and says, “You’re a lot taller than I thought you’d be.”

He’s, quite frankly, he’s not bad to look at, and Ryan stands there dumbfounded for a good ten seconds before saying, “Ryan, my name is hello.” He’s taken aback by his own betrayal. He’s never told anyone his real name that readily; what the fuck is he doing? And to tell Golden Boy like that, all tongue tied.

Has he lost his goddamn mind?

He needs to rectify this, needs to be intimidating so Golden Boy doesn’t use this information against him, but his stupid mouth betrays him again when he says, “I meant, hello my name is Ryan.”

STOP, he shouts at himself, but the damage is done. He should just show Golden Boy his face, get it over with, because he’s probably going to end up in jail. At least he knows what Golden Boy looks like, not that that would do him any good, but it’s something.

Golden Boy surprises him by laughing. He nods towards the passenger seat and says, “Get in. I’m Gavin by the way.”

“That’s a… that’s a name,” Ryan murmurs, and seriously he needs to stop talking.

“Yep, that is a name.” Gavin waits a beat before asking, “You getting in or should I come back?”

“What?” Yes, yes he is going to get into that car. He totally is, if only his feet would work.

Finally, with some serious cajoling on his part, he forces his feet to move. He slides into the passenger seat of Gavin’s car, yanking his mask off his head (because what’s the point in hiding his face now), and hears Gavin squee, his face turning red.

“Are you okay?”

“I just…” Gavin shakes his head, gripping his steering wheel tightly, pulling back onto the road. “Your face…”

“What about my face?”

“It’s not what I expected.”

“What’d you expect?”

“Joker scars?”

“Fuck you.” Ryan crosses his arms, glaring at the dashboard. How dare stupid Gavin with his stupid face make comments about Ryan’s face. He opens his mouth to deliver a witty retort, but what comes out is, “Your face…. is good too.”

He doesn’t say another word the rest of the ride.

Petition for a black and white, 40s throwback, film noir episode, yeah? Betty with pin curls and Jughead in a fedora, meeting for secret rendezvous in a back alley behind Pop’s as they investigate the seedy underbelly of Riverdale… I’ve ruined myself with the need for this

3.5/5 Stars.

Reading this book is like being immersed in a dark and sometimes magical fairytale. There’s such a striking balance of whimsy and depravity.

The story centers around Rose and Pierrot, both abandoned at birth at a Montreal orphanage shortly before the Great Depression. The two children are drawn to each other from a young age, linked by their complementary talents: guileless Pierrot is a piano prodigy and feisty Rose choreographs comedic dance routines.

Separated as teenagers, Rose and Pierrot are swallowed by the seedy underbelly of Montreal. Rose takes up with a dangerous and possessive gangster, while Pierrot becomes addicted to heroin. But neither can let go of the memory of the other, and their mutual dream of putting on a real show.

Going into this, I was pleasantly surprised by how dark and gritty and perverted it was; since “whimsy” and “magic” aren’t really my thing, the darkness keep me engaged. Though out of my usual comfort zone, I’m glad I gave it a chance. O'Neill writes with joy, sadness and conviction about the corrupting powers of the world and the yearning to retain innocence in spite of it all, concluding with a final page that really cements the tragedy of this dichotomy.

I suspect many readers will enjoy this book—so long as they’re prepared for the darker aspects of it.

don’t stop believin’

For @rumaan, for getting me into this ship in the first place <3

Steve wasn’t sure what he hated more: Nancy feeling sorry enough for him that she was trying to set him up with another girl, or all of the girls that Nancy deemed worthy of replacing her. It wasn’t that anything was wrong with the girls specifically–they were all very nice, very pretty, and very smart, and under any other circumstances, Steve would be perfectly charmed by them. It was just that he wanted to meet a girl…organically. Not because his ex-girlfriend felt sorry for him and was throwing every available female his way.

Thankfully, there were only so many girls in Hawkins, and it didn’t take long before Steve had gone out with almost everyone Nancy tried to throw his way. He was relieved–now he could finish out his senior year without sucking it up through another awkward dinner and movie.

…or so he thought.

Graduation was only a month away when he agreed to give Dustin a ride to Hopper’s cabin so that he could visit El. A couple of the other kids were there, as well as a girl Steve had never seen before. She was pretty, in a terrifying sort of way. Her black hair was edged in purple, and part of her head was shaved. Her eyes were dark, rimmed in thick, smudged eyeliner, and her clothes were definitely not from Hawkins. She looked like she was in a punk rock music video on MTV.

“She’s my sister,” El announced. “Kali.” She pointed to Steve. “That’s Steve. Our babysitter.”

“I’m not…really her babysitter,” Steve said. “Just. Theirs.” He pointed to the boys.

Kali didn’t look impressed.

“So…sister, huh?” Steve said, feeling rather out of place.

“It’s a long story,” Kali said. Her accent was…well, he couldn’t really place it. English? Maybe? Definitely not American. That only deepened the mystery.

Steve bobbed his head. “Cool. Cool, cool, cool.”

He didn’t stay for much longer–Jonathan would be swinging by later and giving all the boys a ride home, and Steve had the distinct feeling that Kali didn’t…approve of him? Somehow? So he drove home, wondering how these two girls could be sisters.

Baby Driver (2017)

What do you get when you rely on a daily diet of pop music, television, and Hollywood? Baby Driver

Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is a thoroughly entertaining homage to pop culture. Borderline Tarantino-esque without being tiresome, it grabs the audience from bold, brazen opening all the way to its bombastic, bubblegum end. Interestingly enough, what makes this film original is that it’s intentionally formulaic. It draws from pop culture tropes to tell a tale as old as time: a man of few words doing one last, dangerous job, falls in love with a breathless waitress only to imperil her as his unsavory contacts come after them both and threaten his dream of a quiet, painfully normal life. 

It’s a movie you’ve seen a thousand times before, and yet there’s nothing quite like it.  

Baby Driver was non-stop pure fun, powered by a raucous soundtrack and a talented cast. Ansel Elgort is Baby, an amalgam of Ferris Bueller and Ryan Gosling’s character from Drive, and prolific getaway driver to a seriously bad batch of criminal elements that included Jon Hamm and Eliza González’s Bonnie and Clyde duo Buddy and Darling, Jamie Foxx’s perpetually paranoid Bats, and Jon Bernthal’s agro alpha male Griff. Kevin Spacey rounds out this ragtag group with his mild-mannered yet menacing Doc. 

We learn that Baby was roped into this seedy underbelly because he once swiped a car that belonged to Doc. Big mistake, as Doc is some kind of criminal mastermind who, like the Lannisters, is all about those debts. Baby is at the mercy of Doc’s every beck and call, playing getaway driver to all sorts of crazy heists, from bank robberies to post office holdups. Baby doesn’t care much for this life of crime, but he trudges through it so he can get square with Doc and get out for good. But as we savvy consumers of Hollywood films know all too well, there’s no such thing as getting out for good.

Kudos to the stunt choreography in this film, because that opening intro was such a joy to watch. Special mention must be made for Jamie Foxx, who seemed to play the role of Bats with relish. His intensity leapt off the screen, and he made a fantastic antagonist to our young hero. Kevin Spacey, as per usual, brought his signature sneer and style to the film. Overall, Baby Driver boasted a solid cast of characters.

Music is a character of its own in Baby Driver, fueling Baby’s auto antics as he swerves and drifts through the streets in a series of adrenaline-pumping stunts. Elgort looks like he’s having a blast as he channels his best Ferris Bueller, flitting from scene to scene with an easy charisma far from expected from the Fault in our Stars actor. He infused Baby with a swagger that made him endlessly likable…almost too likable. But when you think about the story being deliberately referential, you suspend your disbelief and watch this smooth talking wheelman charm the pants off of Lily James’ blonde ingénue.

…which brings me to the subject of female tropes. On the surface, it’s easy to take umbrage at the clichés of women in the film. You’ve got James’ demure damsel who giggles at everything Baby says and González’s Darling, the fighting fucktoy who spends most of the film scantily clad and wrapped around Jon Hamm. So you’ve got the classic madonna/whore dichotomy, and a leading lady who solely exists to be the fulcrum for Baby’s man pain. But wait! Before you go and fetch your pitchforks, these stock characters of cinema are there for a reason. The whole film relies on your instant recognition of these tropes. Once the audience realizes this, the movie becomes a whole new experience. 

It’s a risky concept, but one that Wright tackles with gusto. He imbues Baby Driver with humor, action, sweetness, and danger; it’s an odd mix of styles to throw into a single movie, to be sure, but as Tarantino’s True Romance demonstrates, it can be done. In keeping with its musical spirit, Baby Driver crescendoes through some predictable moments before saving the totally batshit for last: a grand finale that is so outlandish and over-the-top, it could have been straight out of a comic book.

And that’s the reason why Baby Driver is so good. It commits. It takes a leap of faith that the audience will trust that a movie can be based on Hollywood formulas yet still be told in a refreshing and exciting way. It’s almost too meta, pointing out that while we decry movie tropes and roll our eyes at cinema stereotypes, they can still be enjoyable if you’ve got a good story. 

Oh, and let’s not forget that badass soundtrack, of course.

It’s Act Omega’s Anniversary!

Hey everyone, we hope you’re all enjoying the ever-loving fuck outta Hiveswap, because god knows we are! However, in the unimaginable hype of Hiveswap finally being released, you may not have realized that today is also the comic’s ANNIVERSARY! Can you believe WP went and stole our holiday?? (Way to make it about us, I know.) 

We could use the somewhat more compatible date of April 16th, the anniversary of the team itself, but that’s dangerously close to yet another signifcant date in this hellish memescape our calendars have become. There’s something magic about meme numbers, a power we may never truly understand.

Anyway, thanks to convivencia for this wonderful anniversary banner. I know it’s kinda small beans at the moment, but we just wanted to give you all an update on what’s goin’ down in the AO Meme Dungeons right now:

We do plan to release a smaller update tomorrow, weather permitting…(one of our artists had to evacuate Hurricane Irma, but don’t worry, they’re alright now). It’s pretty light on dialogue, but hey, an upd8’s an upd8. So if you’re not busy trying to stay alive in the seedy Alternian underbelly, give it a read! 

Hopefully we will continue to update every week and a half, at least until Joy’s schedule levels out from Total Anarchy. Send her some love, because god knows she needs some.

Oh, and one last thing. One of our most dope-ass musicians, the incredibly talented dbnet18, made a song to commemorate the anniversary! You can listen to it here!

But all that said, we hope you all enjoy Hiveswap and all the community craziness that is bound to come with it. Grab your troll horns and face paint, because this is going to be a hell of a ride.

We ended the session with a galactic bar fight at the Fusion Queen! A dive bar and dance club, in the seedy underbelly of Absalom Station, known as the Downsides. Our attempts at hacking all failed, and we also failed to sneak into the back room, leading to our Kasatha trying to beat a gang member over the head with a bourbon bottle, only to get knocked out with a club.

missisjoker  asked:

Hey there, I just recently joined the fandom (2 weeks ago, came for nude boys and stayed for Stiles)- and i am right now in Sterek hell because those two idiots are perfect together. Do you have any recommendations for 1) fics where Derek is sassing up Stiles (cause he is sassy, but we don't see that side of him in the tv show cause it's drowned by all the angst) and b) fics where Derek realizes he wants Stiles for himself when Stiles starts dating Malia? (you're dating a wrong Hale, dude)

ahh welcome to the fandom friend!! we have a sassy!derek tag which i can update for you and anything revolving around your second request would probably be found in either the season 3b tag or the season 4 tag

The Art of War (And Building Really Big Balloons) by coconutcranberries (orphan_account) (1/3 | 2,933 | NR)

Derek stood in the muted quiet of the dank pub, and clenched his fist around the handle of his briefcase. He knew of Stilinski’s reputation, the reputation of his crew. The seedy underbelly of London was far from quiet, and Derek had been hearing whispers for a long time now, whispers of a boy with the ingenuity to make monsters out of metal, creatures of clockwork, ships of steel. That was precisely why Derek was here.

Sound the trumpets by Nival_Vixen (1/1 | 1,241 | PG13)

Stiles has become an accidental and unwilling parent to a cygnet. In a fit of sleep deprivation and overdose of Red Bull, he named it Derek. At least, that’s what he told the rest of the pack. 

Superhero Comic pitch

From seedy underbelly to high society, no-one escapes their gaze - and nobody realizes they’re there.  Crime and grime vanish before The Janitors!

From the zealous maverick Rita (alias New Broom) to the old faithfuls who know where the dirt is, they gather information, make their plans, and work with each other’s quirks and schedules to keep their city safe and upper brass honest.  Justice gets done - and so does the linen.

The Signs as shit Calvin Fischoeder has done

Gemini: showed Bob the seedy underbelly of the Wharf with his dick out

Cancer: bought a giant mechanical shark

Virgo: gave Bob a box of envelopes for Christmas

Libra: sold the kids a broken bumper car for three bucks

Scorpio: raised everyone’s rent unnecessarily high just for attention

Sagitarrius: laid down on his belly on a dirty sidewalk so he could feed a squirrel cotton candy

Capricorn: was almost indirectly responsible for the deaths of several people when the roller coaster collapsed

Aquarius: set up a folding chair in front of a bank so he could watch a robbery

Pisces: drummed on the door and sang a song so Felix would feel better

This was his job – his life. It’s when he’s passing through Loveland, Colorado, a few weeks into the haul, that he sees him; sitting on the side of Route 287, a few scarce fingers from the yellow line dividing him from the wandering shoulder to Limbo, USA and instantaneous death. His thumb pokes out of a hole in his ratty black gloves, arms covered in flannel and denim, and his whole body is strapped under worn, beaten overalls. The line of his legs, constantly stepping backwards, becomes fractured at the calf where steel-toe boots begin.
Overalls, Jared thinks.

Summary: Deadliest Catch AU. Keep your head down. Work hard. Never wear a hat in the wheelhouse or your luck will take a nosedive. This is the rookie advice that Jared gets in his first few days as a deckhand on board an Alaskan crabbing boat, in between catnaps and ice storms, twenty-foot seas and more near misses than he really wants to count. He also learns early mornings followed by late nights aren’t enough to kill a person, but ten minutes in below freezing waters might be, and that the biggest favor he can do for himself is to try and stay on the captain’s good side.
Jensen rose quickly through the ranks to become one of the youngest captains the fleet has ever seen, but he has been around long enough to know that no one ever gets through a season without a few battle scars. It’s Jared’s quick wit, sarcastic mouth, and a particular sort of point-of-no-return look about him that makes Jensen hire Jared on a whim, reminds Jensen a little of himself fifteen years ago. There’s nothing better than watching the morning break over the bow of the ship - Jensen just needs to keep Jared alive and well long enough for the kid to figure that out for himself.

But it shouldn’t take much more than Jared’s sunny charm to melt Jensen’s icy facade, right?

Summary: When artist Jensen Ackles moved to the Pacific Northwest from the southwest with his family – adoptive father Jeff and adoptive brothers Chris and Quinn – it gave him a chance to paint a whole new world of mountains and forest at the beautiful plateau near Mount Rainier. Two years later, disaster struck when Jensen was the victim of a violent attack that left his hands permanently injured to the point that he could no longer paint.
During the two years since then, he has spent days helping his father and brother at the farm, café and draft horse rescue that has become the center of their lives on the plateau while slowly recovering, physically and mentally.
One day their world is shaken when their new neighbor – a local tycoon infamous for his ruthless business methods – informs them that the survey line on their property is wrong and they are about to lose almost a third of their pasture to him. That is, unless one of them can work for him for a year, in which case he will deed over the property.
Jensen goes to work for their mysterious new neighbors – coffee magnate Jared Padalecki and his lawyer Matt Cohen – but is shocked to discover one of his own paintings hanging in the house. As the past is slowly revealed and revisited, their lives are increasingly intertwined until the fateful day where all their lives may be changed – or destroyed – forever.

Pairing: Sam/Dean. Pre-Crowley/Castiel
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 29,780
Warnings: Temporary Major Character Death. Suicide. Blood, guts and gore. Dark Themes. Time Travelling Winchesters
Summary: Sam’s gone, Dean’s barely holding on, and Castiel - well, Castiel’s left nursing a man who’s already given up.
When Dean decides The Empty would be preferable to a life without his brother, Castiel has to find a way to scrub the red from his clothes and fix the world, a world that needs the Winchesters.
It takes a deal with a deity who wants nothing more than to see the Winchesters burn, a reforming of old friendships, and an alliance with an unholy creature to bring Sam back into play and stop Dean making a cataclysmic mistake (again).
Now, all that’s stopping the universe being shredded is a group of individuals that make absolutely no sense: two desperate and disheveled Hunters, one half flaccid Angel, and a Demon who doesn’t know which side of the fence he’s sitting on any more.
Can Dean let go of this Sam? Will Crowley finally pick a side? Can Castiel live with his guilt? Who knows, but one thing is set in stone: The Winchesters and their family never give up without a fight and they’ll take whoever they need to, down with them.

Summary: As the world around him gives up its autumn colors and settles down into the long cold of winter, Sam’s own body is finally slowing into its own kind of hibernation. Deep in the mountains with only Dean and a broken laptop for company, isolation is their best defense against the outside world during the vulnerability of Sam’s transformation. Sam didn’t expect becoming a vampire to be easy, but he didn’t expect almost a decade of being mind-numbingly bored either. He should have remembered that the world has cures for boredom – and the cure is always worse than the disease.

Chapters: 14/14

Summary: Our story is about a city, and the people who live in that city. It’s about the dark corners, the hiding places nobody knows where the hand of the law doesn’t quite reach. It’s about broken-down old buildings, about concealed switchblades. It’s about what is commonly known as chiaroscuro: the intense, blinding contrast between light and dark. In this city, though, there’s a little more oscuro than there is chiaro.

The name of our city is Riverdale.

Fic: Thieves’ Tools [Vex, Vax | 7700 words]

(no spoilers; set pre-series)

[AO3 | FFN | More Fic]

Two weeks after they found the ruins of their hometown, when the mire of misery had finally been pushed back by all the practical concerns that came with no reliable source of income, Vex sat down across from her brother, slammed a flawless turquoise gemstone onto the table, and said, “I’d like to hire us for a bit of thievery.”

Thieves’ Tools

Vax stared at her; the artful hollows of his cheeks and bruised darkness beneath his eyes did little to mask his baffled expression. “You’d like to what?”

Vex tapped one quick-bitten nail against the top of the gem, then thought better of it when someone from the next table glanced over. Perfect prop though it was, she let the hunk of turquoise disappear into its usual home in the pouch at her side. “I’d like to hire us to steal something. Wake up, brother. I’ve got us a job.”

In response, Vax made a sound somewhere along the lines of a constipated night-owl and took a long swig of ale from his mug. Vex watched him, waiting patiently, then kicked him under the table when he took a bit too long. He sputtered, swiping at his face with one threadbare sleeve. “Ow. Don’t make me spill, it’s not like we can afford another.”

Unless she was very much mistaken, that was a glint of real annoyance in his voice. Good. “A job, Vax.”

“I heard you the first time. But you giving yourself money isn’t generally how this works.”

“The gem, Vax. I’ll sell the gem.”

It took him a moment. She watched his mind’s clockwork, rusted from a fortnight of inactivity, slowly grind back into motion. His brow furrowed, and she knew she’d finally got his attention when his fingers started tapping nervously against the table’s edge. “You’ve had that gem for ages. You wouldn’t even sell it when Trinket started eating us out of house and home, before he learned to forage for himself.”

Vex was positively itching to pull the turquoise back out of her pouch, but there was no sense drawing unwanted attention. “I said I was saving it up for something important. This is it. I’d like to hire us.”

Scratching at his shoulder, Vax stared up at the ceiling for a moment before looking back to her. His fingers took up their tapping again. “To do what, exactly?”

“To steal.”

He sighed. “To steal what, exactly?”

“Well, that’s part of it.” She leaned across the table, lowered her voice theatrically; in spite of himself, he leaned closer to hear. “I’m paying for secrecy. I can tell you where, and I can tell you when, and I think I can even tell you what to expect in terms of security, though of course I bow to your expertise when it comes to drawing secrets from the seedy underbelly of society.”

His lips twitched. “The seedy underbelly of society?”

“Why not? You’re certainly looking seedy, anyway. When’s the last time you bathed?”

“I’m not the one who spends all her time living with a bear in the woods.” He shifted back in his seat, somehow dodging her next under-table kick. “Listen, Vex'ahlia, I appreciate the thought, but you don’t have to invent an adventure to get me out of wallowing.”

“Ooh. Look who thinks so highly of himself. Believe it or not, brother, this has nothing to do with you. If you won’t take the job, I’ll find someone who will.” And damn it, how much longer would her voice take on that telltale quaver every time she raised it?

Vax curled back a little, rubbing his brow. “You’re serious. Is it dangerous?”

She jutted out her chin, waited until he was looking her in the eyes. “Probably.”

“And you’re going to do it with or without me?”

“Definitely.”

The Complete Set

Written for the prompt overlord @inkstainedcoffeecup inspired by this tweet thread (though its a modification of what she actually prompted)

Set Late Season 2-ish


Returning to her desk from the bathroom, Kate Beckett strolled confidently through the bullpen, nodding to her coworkers as she passed them by. She and her team had just wrapped up another successful case and she was looking forward to a few days without tracking down a killer—assuming the seedy underbelly of New York would comply.

As she rounded the corner of the hall leading towards her desk, Kate saw before her a sight that while not unusual was peculiar nonetheless. Ryan was seated at his desk with Esposito and Castle crowded on either side of him; they all appeared to be studying something intently. She rolled her eyes, initially thinking it was something mildly salacious on Ryan’s computer screen, but the closer she got she realized the screensaver was on, and their focus was on something resting on Ryan’s desk.

“What are you boys doing?” she asked a bit louder than necessary in hopes of startling them. She did and they all jumped apart while unanimously proclaiming, “Nothing!”

Kate narrow her eyes as she gazed at each guilty man’s face trying to interpret their nervousness. She studied them for the better part of a minute, mostly just to make them sweat, before saying, “Nothing means something. Let’s see it.”

She held out her hand and the boys crowded protectively around Ryan’s seat. “No; it’s nothing.”

With an eye roll and long suffering exhale, Kate stepped forward and reached through them to grasp at the pages sitting in front of Ryan’s keyboard. While the boys chorused, “No! Wait! Don’t!” she yanked the magazine forward and held it open in her left hand to examine it.

Though she had half been expecting a scantily clad model in GQ or even an article with a get-better-at-sex type theme, she was utterly floored to discover they were not only looking at a women’s magazine, but a quiz in a women’s magazine! “’Your coffee habits will reveal the hair color of your next boyfriend’?” She read with a squeak. “Guys!”

Ryan stood from his desk and quickly attempted damage control. “It’s, ah, Jenny’s…she left it…in my bag…”

She arched a skeptical eyebrow at them before gazing back down at the page. Honestly! The quiz seemed more fitted for a teen magazine than anything else. “I see. Well I can’t wait to meet your next beau, Espo.”

The detective squeaked. “Me!? Wha—no! Castle was taking the quiz!”

Kate rotated her head so she could stare at the writer. He appeared mortified and she could hardly contain the laugh bubbling in her chest. Fighting to keep her expression neutral she tilted her head to the side and said, “Was he now? And here I was so adamant to Natalie Rhodes that you weren’t gay…”

Cryptic Vs Rakuga Horror

@tyrantisterror, in my eyes, is one of the great horror critics of our generation, and I would say one of his greatest achievements is the existence of the Four Horrors theory. Specifically, it’s a hypothesis based on the idea of four primary “Axes” of horror fiction based on the place the horror comes from.

Namely, the horrors of the past (Gothic), horrors of the future/irresponsible-progress (Atomic), the horrors of human rottenness and cruelty (Slasher, tho the issues with that name are for another day) and the horrors of things that are so much more vast and terrible than we could possibly comprehend (Cosmic)

But, I would say there’s another axis related to that theory, one that’s not quite in the same boat but rather supplemental to it.

Like categorizing library books by author or by subject as TT put it.

And thusly, this is the truth of Cryptic Horror vs Rakuga Horror….
